Breaking News: We're interrupting our series on Embracing Our Differences for a much anticipated announcement. Henry and Henrietta, the red shouldered hawks, are proud parents of one fluffy little chick.
When I took these pics, he had the nest all to himself and appeared to be splitting his time between sudden naps (imagine him slowly slumping over) and introducing himself to the world. We think he's approximately one week old. Knowing how protective red shouldered hawks can be, I was especially careful with all my movements while taking these photos.
Because Henry and Henrietta never seem to be too far away. This is Henrietta, looking like a proud mama, perched on a limb about 15 feet up and over from the nest. I'm so happy the little one finally arrived! Bravo.
